Not to mention the 3 euro parking x go visit. "It costs 5 in the parking lot in Portofino! > Not to mention the fact that I'm almost outraged that i wasn't in the church with my small-sized dog... God's house is not open to everyone?!!! I used to take it everywhere and the education of my dog is better than the education of so many children and adults...

Impressive, ask for a guided tour to see what is behind the closed doors. A monk will give you all the information. You pay as much you feel. Don't miss the shop with healthy stuff made by the community. Enjoy your time. Closing at 18:00
